Summer Uniform

School uniform is to be worn correctly by all day boys at School and when travelling to or from School. There are some special regulations for boarders.

When ties are worn the collar button must be done up. Shirts need to be tucked in properly. All clothing must be marked with the boy's name. Name tapes may be ordered through the Uniform Shop.

Hair should be neat, tidy, clean and brushed. It must be an even cut over the head with a minimum length Number 3. Hair should not fall over the collar, eyes or ears and is to be the natural colour (no added colours or dyes). If product, hair ties or head bands are required to keep hair from falling across the ears or face, the hair is too long. Boys must be clean-shaven.

No jewellery, other than a  wristwatch  or medic alert bracelet, is to be worn.

No tattoos of any kind are permitted.

Summer uniform must be worn in Summer Term and Spring Term. Winter uniform must be worn in Autumn Term and Winter Term. Boys who have earned a Colours or Honours tie may wear this tie instead of a House tie on Fridays. All boys will need to possess both a School tie and a House tie which are both obtained only from the Uniform Shop.

Boys who have Physical Education in Period 6 may wear their sport uniform home at the end of the school day.

Occasionally the School will have a Free Dress Day when boys will be permitted to wear casual clothing. This is usually run as a fund-raising exercise. On these days, clothing must be clean and neat without offensive wording, closed in shoes must be worn and the rules on jewellery remain unchanged.
